David Boyle, New Economics Foundation

[Live from London] A captivating talk by David Boyle on an early experiment in cross-border multi-currency funds transfer in the eurozone: the ransom of King Richard the Lionheart as discussed in his excellent book “Blondel’s Song: The Capture, Imprisonment and Ransom of Richard the Lionheart”. David’s observation on the unpredictable consequences on the transition from a feudal to a money economy provided a thoughtful perspective for some of the days later discussions. Without the use of coins, no such ransom would have been possible.
